Common Water Issues Coeur d'Alene

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The primary water source for the city of Coeur d'Alene is the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, an underground river that flows an average of 200 feet below the surface. The aquifer begins at Lake Pend Oreille, where it flows southwest to Spokane and can carry over 650,000,000 gallons per day. Once the water reaches Coeur d'Alene, it is distributed to nine wells located throughout the city, which pump a combined 37 million gallons of water per day.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

As Coeur d'Alene's water makes the long journey from source to faucet, it absorbs dissolved minerals, such as iron and calcium. This results in the water becoming hard, which can be the cause of many household headaches. Some signs that the water coming out of your tap is hard include:

  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • Underperforming appliances due to buildup
  • Stiff or scratchy laundry
  • Dry, itchy skin

General Bad Taste

During the water filtration process, minerals and chemicals like chlorine are added and absorbed, sometimes resulting in foul-tasting water. High levels of chlorine in water can result in:

  • Bitter, chemical taste and smell to water
  • Tea and coffee tasting 'off'
  • Unpleasant taste while brushing teeth

Itchy, Dry Skin

One of hard water's most invasive characteristics is what it does to your skin and hair. Bathing or showering with hard water can cause:

  • Itchy scalp and dandruff
  • Flaky, dry, irritated skin
  • Premature aging

No matter what the cause of your water issues may be, Culligan has a filtration solution that will get you back to enjoying every sip, shower, and wash. Culligan's free water test will help you get to the root of your water problems and find the perfect treatment solution.

Did You Know

At one time, all of Coeur d'Alene's water was sourced from Lake Coeur d'Alene. Today, however, the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer is the city's sole water source.
